A new video of a UFO flying over a volcano has been uploaded to YouTube. (For those who may not be aware, volcanoes are a common place for UFOs to appear, and live webcams have helped us to document them!)
The most recent UFO sighting occurred in Japan, over the Sakurajima volcano. Check out the video and video stills below, and let me know if you have any explanations for what this strange light could be. The YouTube channel that uploaded the footage suggests it could be a comet or rocket, but I don't have any evidence (so far) to conclude anything but "UFO":
In UFOJane's latest video, amazing UFOs seen in Japan and by Japanese citizens are recounted...what do you think of these cases? Do they prove that aliens are real, or is there something else going on? As always, share your theories and comments on YouTube, or on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram:
Locals and online news readers are debating whether or not a gigantic fireball seen over Japan was a meteor or a UFO. You can watch the video and be the judge for yourself. No matter what, this was a confirmed mass sighting and the object does not behave like a typical meteor, so perhaps it was falling space junk (perhaps this is the Tiangong-1 rocket from China that was expected to crash to Earth) or something else a little more out of the ordinary:
Space junk may be a greater threat to planet Earth than meteors! What do you think of this sighting? Is it a crash craft or rocket or a just a plain meteor?

Just a few days after a 7.0-magnitude earthquake shook Japan, killing dozens, Ecuador was hit with a a 7.8-magnitude quake, which killed hundreds. The town of Pedernales is currently in disaster mode.
While astronomers don't ever predict meteors to rain down on us this precise time of year (the Lyrids aren't expected until April 22nd), maybe they ought to add a new shower to the calendar. Because according to a Facebook post made by a local living in Guayaquil, Ecuador, a fireball exploded over the city the same night of the deadly earthquake. Other meteors were also spotted in other parts of the world, as well as a UFO in Japan, leading up to the deadly earthquakes. Not to mention - it was only a year ago this week that a 7.8-magnitue earthquake hit Nepal, claiming over 9,000 lives.

According to the Okinawa Times and YouTube videos and photos to hit the web, Japanese residents of Naha witnessed a collection of strange lights changing formations and hovering in the night sky for several minutes. They were accompanied by a meteor or falling star, which may or may not have been related. In YouTube videos, the lights almost appear to talk to each other and interact. They are definitely not conventional air crafts or Chinese lanterns.
Japan - like many Asian and even South American countries - is no stranger to incredible mass UFO sightings, which do not happen or get reported on as frequently in the US.
At first, the event was reported as a mass UFO sighting, but since then the Okinawa Times has perhaps(?) backpedaled a bit and "debunked" it as military flares. Not sure I buy that explanation, or even understand it... you can read the translated news story below.
